Research Shows That the “Humble Printer” Remains a Security Blind Spot
What if you could:
The HP LaserJet Printers and MFPs have a very nice free feature that allows you to send a print job to a LaserJet Printer or MFP and the print job will be stored on the machine until it is released using a PIN number. This feature is called Job Storage. It's completely free and built into just about every HP LaserJet Printer and MFP print driver.
Of course you do, that is what most businesses do...
Welcome to part 5 of 5 in my series, Danger in Plain Sight. In the last article, we shared some of the solutions that plague one of the most vulnerable parts of your network: your printers, copiers, and MFP's. Here, in our closing article, I will share some recommended next steps you should take to protect your devices better, regardless of which manufacturer created them.
In today’s fast-paced world of ever changing technology, I think we can all agree... our expectations are set high. Long gone are the times of signing copier leases with no flexibility. In fact, those leases only made sense back when the internet didn't exist! They simply do not meet the demands set by consumers today, and should not be utilized in the managed print world.
It's time to take some medicine. In the previous three parts of this series of five articles, we talked about the danger lurking inside of our networks, how it goes undefended and how the risks manifest. In this article, we’re ready to discuss the solutions.
This is part 3 of a 5-part series about one of the most significant and often overlooked danger to your I.T. environment... Your Printers and MFPs. In Parts 1 & 2, we spoke about the vulnerabilities and reframed our view on modern printers. In part three, we are going to dive into how some of these threats are realized and what they can do.
